Student Impressions and Preparation for Active Shooter Drills
Disaster Podcast hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Sam Bradley sat down after EMS Today 2016 to talk more about the excellent Active Shooter Drill conducted at the conference. Sam and Jamie were joined by Dr. Joe Holley to discuss how the event was perceived by the students and what future students and attendees can do to prepare and learn the most from the conference sessions that Paragon Medical Education Group puts on.
The Paragon Active Shooter Drill at the conference included a little bit of classroom time, a cadaver lab, and time going over new tools on the market like hemorrhage control devices and other trauma treatment devices. Then the drill itself was run with both live and cadaver victims to lend realism to the situation.
